Will is an 18-year-old high school student from Long Valley, NJ. He is the youngest castaway to ever play the game, so as a Super Fan, he says that's his crowning achievement in life so far.
Will began playing on the Vanua (Millennials) Tribe and then joined forces with Justin "Jay" Starrett when a tribal swap forced them to start from scratch on a brand new tribe called Ikabula. While Will is probably proud of his game thus far, his fellow castaways have criticized him for riding Jay's coattails.
But fans probably haven't seen the best of Will yet, as he won the season's first Individual Immunity Challenge when castaways were gunning for him after the merge. Will considers himself cunning and dynamic, so it's possible people will underestimate him.
